Parish Background

The Orthodox Christian Church of Christ the Saviour, Paramus, New Jersey has a census of just over 109 adult members.  The parish has a mix of young to middle-aged adults, seniors, and children.  Most parishioners are of Slavic heritage, but there are some Greek, Latin-American, and Anglo-Saxon members as well.

The parish was founded in 1960 and, on August 7 of that year, the first Divine Liturgy of the newly formed community was celebrated.

The parish of Christ the Saviour is celebrating its 50th year of expressing the unity of the people of God as a community of love, striving to grow in a way that is not selfish but charitable, and endeavoring to fulfill the evangelical mission of bringing all people to Christ and His Church.
